How Winners Are Chosen

  • REALTOR® Spirit
  • Participation in civic activities, including service clubs, charity, fraternal or religious groups
  • Notable business accomplishments
  • State, local and/or national association activity, including attendance at national conventions, participation in leadership, or work with NAR’s affiliated institutes, societies, and councils.
